  • The Nehru Planetarium situated on the grounds of 'Nehru Memorial Museum and Library' earlier known as "Teen Murti Bhavan" Residence of India's first Prime Minister . The planetarium is amongst the few in the world, which has frequently updated. The Doom shaped Sky Theatre shown at Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium is very popular and attract about more than 200,000 visitors per year. It is especially for small kids to learn about astronomy and space. new thing we learned about light pollution .
  • A very good place to have a deeper understanding of Modern Indian History and know our leaders more closely. Highly recommended to bring children to give a spark for space science in particular. Space show is a must see item!! Overall a very pleasant experience!!
  • A learning experience for kids. One should not miss. But... don't buy anything from the canteen. They sell things on double price.
  • Well this is the place you can't miss when you are in mumbai.... they have good show about stars and planets at regular intervals.. although new topics should be included now as past topics are still goin on ,,, but overall good visit for kids as well..
  • Very poorly maintained. Projector brightness is very low (may be bulbs have not been replaced for a long while). It was hard to see colours most of the time. One projector was not even working leaving an empty patch on the screen. The seats were hard to push back, especially for the children. Lastly most of the program was screened on one side, without any such information. Hall was empty so we could relocate in the dark. But what's the point. At least they could have announced to sit appropriately! Bangalore planetarium much better than NCR!
